Medieval Gambeson “Errant Squire”

Woolen two-pieces gambeson with cotton lining and buckles

Though he’s prone to wander, the Errant Squire is still reliable. Hard working, intelligent, and boasting big dreams, he feels that no task is below him, and is always happy to get down to business and get things done. From standing guard on a chilly evening to going for long walks in the countryside surrounding the keep, he always trusts his wool gambeson to keep him safe and warm.

The Errant Squire collection resembles this character: hard wearing, well crafted but without the ostentatious etching or pomp and circumstance of our fancier sets. Made with care from quality materials, this basic gambeson will become a staple in your medieval wardrobe for years to come.

The first thing you probably noticed about this gambeson is that it comes in two pieces. The internal “crop top” piece, consists of padded arms and a thin, unpadded body piece that laces up the middle for a good fit. The arms have plenty of room for swinging a sword and allow a great range of movement. The side of the arm has leather arming points at the perfect height to arm your arm harness. There are no buttons at the bottom of the sleeve - instead, we’ve left them with a slit which will allow you to roll them back if you’re unarmored, and comfortably fit your bracers overtop of.

The second piece of the gambeson goes overtop, and is a vest. This is completely padded and closes up in the middle with a series of strong leather buckles. They are attached with rivets and reinforced with washers. We used practical hardware to make sure the buckles are strong. We’ve attached arming points on the shoulders to make it easy for you to arm your pauldrons without having to add anything to the gambeson.

This gambeson makes use of a number of great materials. Made from quality wool, which is both warm and breathable, and lined with a robust cotton, this garment has a decent amount of structure and will hold up well in the heat of battle. All of the edges are finished with the same cotton as the lining, making this a well-finished, refined piece of clothing.

This is a piece that will work well as basic padding, but also just generally looks excellent and will suit you well as you adventure through forests in the mist or walk through the countryside dappled with snow.

  • K Zimmerman 28 of September 2019:

    can this be made in any other colors?

    ArmStreet Team:

    This gambeson can be made in red and black colors only for now, sorry. 

  • Brian 05 of August 2019:

    Is it possible to get these with maille voiders shaped for the Errant Squire armor set?

    ArmStreet Team:

    Dear Brian, we can add arming points on the gamebson on the shoulders and biceps like shown on the pictures of the listing. 

  • Natalie 27 of May 2019:

    I only need to top to this. Is there a way to buy just the top and not the leg padding?

    ArmStreet Team:

    Hi Natalie, sorry it is not possible for this particular gambeson. 

  • warriorby4 15 of May 2019:

    Will you consider making Errant Squire Woolen Chausses? I would prefer the wool to the linen I have recently purchased. I like the thickness of the wool you used for the gambeson. The linen chausses seems a bit thin.

    ArmStreet Team:

    Hello, we can make them in wool upon request. Please contact our support team to place the order for custom chausses. 

  • warriorby4 05 of April 2019:

    What are you wearing under the chausses? Do you sell that?

    ArmStreet Team:

    Hello, classic linen or cotton pants can be worn. They are available here

  • warriorby4 05 of April 2019:

    So...No codpiece with the chausses? What is he wearing with the codpiece? The 200$ Medieval Hosen? I'm new to all this what keeps the chausses up?

    ArmStreet Team:

    Hello, this ia the listing for gambeson. Chausses can be purchased here. They should be worn with some belt. Any classic linen or cotton pants can be worn underneath. 

  • Erk 06 of September 2018:

    Does this gambeson offer any protection against cutting, slashint or piercing with a blade like its reallife caunterparts?

    ArmStreet Team:

    Hi Erk! This gambeson is made of wool which is very durable material. However, it still can be damaged or cut with blade, unfortunately

  • Garrison Garett Pauls 03 of September 2018:

    Hello I would love a gambeson like this BUT I have a size 52 inch chest and I know this one wouldn't work so anyway I can custom it or when will you have a size larger. Thanks

    ArmStreet Team:

    Hi! This particular gambeson comes in fixed sizes only and the largest is XXL. However, our size XXL should actually work for you. 

  • Nicholas Conley 26 of June 2018:

    Would this gambeson be sufficient under-armor for SCA combat?

    ArmStreet Team:

    Hi Nicholas, yes it is sufficient under-armor for SCA combat.

    A very nice gambeson. I got the black and burgundy one. I have a 44” or 112cm chest, so I ordered a size large and it fits perfectly.

  • Cathy Johnson 25 of January 2023:

    This was a gift for my son. He loved the fit and look.

  • Tom 15 of June 2022:


  • Ivan 14 of June 2022:

    I have a set of this in black and love it. I was just wondering if it is possible to get this in a green with black as the accent colour? Size XL.. Would be great to have this in my colours.

    ArmStreet Team:

    Dear Ivan, we do not take pre-orders for the gambesons at this time, unfortunately, because of the war here. 

  • Soren Bok 18 of July 2021:

    The gambison fits perfectly and if very comfortable, is very well made and visually communicated the quality and care that was put into its construction. They even made it to custom colours that I requested, couldn't be happier.

  • Nico 06 of May 2020:

    Holy moly - This gambeson is a beautiful piece and worth the price! The two-piece design is practical and actually seems to increase flexibility around the armpits. I'm 5'9" (average build) and the size medium fits really well. The arming points are in sensible locations and work well with various pieces of armour. This gambeson is not the thickest one out there, though the woolen outer layer is rugged and sturdy. The whole thing is very comfortable to wear.

  • warriorby4 15 of May 2019:

    My review of the Errant Squire Woolen Gamebson (Red and Black): Awesome and worth every penny. I'm 5'10" 205lbs. I intentionally sized up to an XL and as expected it is a tad large on me. I would recommend a L to anyone looking for a normal fit around my measurements. It arrived to me flawless and exceptional quality. All the stitching is done great. Mine came with round black leather string threaded through all the armor attaching areas. It is quite warm to wear which was expected. The material is very thick and on the stiffer side. The sleeves fold up nice when desired. The rivets on the inside of the buckles are hammered nicely. The under portion which has the sleeves has a large string. You can see in the picture it goes down to his groin. It would fit a very large chest for females I would assume. The vest portion would be slightly adjustable due to the buckles and material overlap, but probably not overly forgiving for large bust.

  • Mark Harrison 12 of July 2018:

    I bought this two piece gambleson in black & burgundy & would recommend it to anyone needing some under armour padding, as it's two piece construction makes movement so easy & comfortable...!
